    One of the most unique pitchers I've seen

    Apparently it's a Nepenthes Ephippiata, but I've never seen an Ephippiata that looks like this. Is this a special variety or something?

    Looks like a pitcher that's an intermediate between the lowers and the uppers. It'd be interesting to see if this morphology is retained on all the pitchers, but I doubt it will be.

    Wow, that's one dark ephippiata clone... astounding plant, I like the bristles quite a bit.

    Ephippiata uppers are much like lowii, but not as constricted and with a thicker (but still quite thin) peristome.

    And ephippiata uppers have much larger lids than Lowii uppers.
